    RETHINKING ITALY'S SHRINKING PLACE IN THE INTERNATIONAL AREA
    Italy’s foreign policy is still shackled by two features inherited from its modern history: an obsessive focus on rank and prestige, and a no less delusional faith in the redemptive character of the EU and other multilateral arrangements it belongs to. The ‘middle power’ foreign policy model elaborated in the 1980s had a rationale of its own but it can hardly be adapted to the globalised world, nor can it be sustained by a deteriorated economic and societal domestic fabric. Italy has to rethink its basic national interests, adapt its foreign policy tools to new concepts of relevance and influence, and focus on a long-term, concerted effort at domestic regeneration if it is to withstand the challenges of the globalised world we live in.

    THE OUTLOOK FOR ALGERIA
    Algeria today faces a triple crisis. The collapse in global oil prices during 2014 and 2015 has meant that its economic future is potentially extremely sombre. In political terms, the regime faces a complex and uncertain transition as the Bouteflika era comes to an end. Moreover, Algeria’s security environment is threatening, given the chaos in Libya, the emergence of extremism in Tunisia and the ongoing violence in northern Mali because of the extremist groups located there. This situation is further complicated by the persistence of “residual terrorism,” as the government terms it, inside Algeria itself and the chronic crisis with Morocco over the latter’s annexation of the Western Sahara in 1975. This paper analyses each of these factors in turn before seeking to outline short- to medium-term scenarios for the future.

    MEPs back Morocco fishing deal - EU vessels will fish in Western Saharan waters

      MEPs gave their approval to a controversial fishing agreement with Morocco, new restrictions on deep-sea fishing, and reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). Under the new arrangement, which is expected to be approved by the member states, fishing vessels from 11 EU countries will be allowed to fish in the waters in return for an annual payment from the EU of 30 million euro with an additional 10 million euro coming from the ship-owners. Of that amount, 14 million has been earmarked to support the development of the Moroccan fisheries industry.

  • THE OCSE'S CONTRIBUTION TO ENERGY GOVERNANCE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN REGION
    Energy governance is at the core of the dialogue between Europe and the Mediterranean region to foster the creation of a shared area of peace, prosperity and stability. Against this backdrop, this report dwells on the potential role of the OSCE in hammering out policies and initiatives targeting energy governance in the Mediterranean beyond the purely economic dimension. It discusses the manifold political, security and environmental challenges and opportunities linked to the use of energy resources, in particular those located in contested areas. It also elaborates on the Organisation’s potential role in preventing disruptions to critical energy infrastructure and in providing assistance and transferring best practices with a view to strengthening the efforts of Mediterranean countries in their transition toward a more sustainable and efficient energy sector.
